Made in France since 1927, Paraboot has flown under the radar for much of its existence. They were the first out the gate with rubber-soled boots, beating Vibram to the punch by a decade or more. To this day, they still make their rubber soles in-house from raw latex. 

The Michael style came about as the need emerged for rugged footwear with ankle flexibility. Retaining the chunky rubber soles, and the Norwegian welt construction from their boots, Paraboot then added a moc-toe upper to complete the shoe. It's chunky, weird, and brought the company back from near-death at one point when it suddenly became extremely cool in Europe (and Japan, of course). 

Mixing this heritage and striking silhouette with our beloved undyed vegetable tanned leather resulted in the best-looking version of the Michael (in our opinion) that we've ever seen.
